Remarks on P. S. Wadia's 'Philo Confounded'

Hume Studies 6 (2):155-161 (1980)
Abstract
IN A PAPER RECENTLY PUBLISHED ("PHILO CONFOUNDED," BY P S WADIA IN "MCGILL HUME STUDIES"-I) THE AUTHOR ATTEMPTS TO CONNECT CLEANTHES’ TWO ILLUSTRATIVE ANALOGIES IN PART III OF HUME’S "DIALOGUES CONCERNING NATURAL RELIGION" TO HUME’S DISCUSSION OF ’MIRACLES’ IN THE FIRST "ENQUIRY". MY PAPER IS DESIGNED TO SHOW A) THAT THERE IS NO BASIS FOR THIS ALLEGED CONNECTION BETWEEN PART III OF THE "DIALOGUES" AND THE ESSAY ON MIRACLES, AND B) THAT AN APPRECIATION OF CLEANTHES’ ILLUSTRATIONS REQUIRES SEARCHING FOR THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE WORLD AND THE ARTICULATE VOICE AND THE WORLD AND THE LIVING VEGETABLE LIBRARY WHICH LEAD CLEANTHES TO THE POSITION THAT INFERENCES ABOUT THE CAUSE OF THE VOICE AND THE LIBRARY ARE THE SAME AS ONE OUGHT TO MAKE WITH RESPECT TO THE WORLD
